Dear Manjunath,
Welcome to HCM.
Knee joints are very important parts of the body and any problem to them should not be taken lightly. They are the weight bearing joints and if neglected will cause irreparable damage later on. You should consult an orthopedic surgeon immediately who will do the necessary tests to find the cause of your knee problem and treat accordingly. Follow his advise which may include rest to the knee joints.
Wishing you speedy recovery.

I am a 47 year old Indian woman. My kness hurt after certain exercises especially while climbing stairs. But they don t always hurt. What should I do? My x rays show only very early stages of arthritis. I made the mistake of resuming my jogging after a break of 4 years.

I had a fall today -tripped over a baby gate and fell directly on my knee cap of my right leg. I can walk with only a little pain and feel I am slightly weak in the right knee when full weight baring but if I bend it any more than about 30 degrees or if I twist it just slightly I get significant shooting pain through my knee. I had staged split stellar tendon transfer about 9 years and 10 years ago to correct patellar tracking/lateral valgus deformity problem and have very mild osteoarthritis changes in my knees. I am 44years old and active/muscular but a little overweight. I am concerned but not sure how worried should be about true joint injury vs bruising. I have taken naproxen and kept ice on knee intermittently since I fell but feels the same anytime I try to bend. Tried putting pillow under knee to elevate but uncomfortable because makes my knee bend. Any thoughts appreciated.

I have knee pain beneath, and around knee cap, mostly on the interior side of knee cap. Knee feels stiff, but no swelling. I have had this issue for some time with no relief. Shooting pain comes with stress on joint, especially when trying to lift with resistance. What type of injury is this likely? What stepa should I take moving forward?

Hello Doctor, My dad 58 is suffering from bone tb in cervical region (C5,C6,C7), he developed weakness in legs and coudnt walk w/o support. Initially he was treated by ortho who put him on 4 drug ATT and performed a minor operation of draining pus but his condition worsened after operation (paraplegic Complete motor and sensory loss in legs, no sense of bladder ) and was refrred to a neurosurgeon. He was operated again and decompression and bone grafting was performed, after one month also his condition did not improve and an MRI was taken again. Doctor said that there is a degeneration in the vertebrae which forms lower part of the graft and the screws were displaced from their position and were causing compression of spinal cord. He was again operated and the graft was removed(by a different doctor). Doctor said that due to multiple operations he has become weak and said that will keep him under observation for sometime and if required operation can be performed after a month. Meanwhile my dad has problem swollowing which was not there after 2 previous operations. He was put on complete bed rest by the previous 2 doctors but this doctor makes him sit for 5 min daily and has also said that will try to make him sit on wheel chair in some days. My question: Is my dad being treated the right way?
